Susanna was the daughter of William Leverton and Ann Draper.

1851 Nov 26 - William, Ann, and their children and left out of Liverpool, England on the ship, Eudocia, bound for New Orleans, Louisiana.

1852 Jan 24 - The ship, Eudocia, arrived in New Orleans. There is no trace of anyone in the family except William and Ann's son, John and their daughter, Susan (Susanna), after arriving in New Orleans.

It is suspected that William & Ann, and the most of their children died on the ship or shortly after arriving in New Orleans.

Susanna, an orphan, was raised by the Harry Johnson family in Shreveport, Caddo Co., Louisiana. Mr. Johnson owned the Battle Bank, the first bank in Shreveport.

Susanna Leverton married Jacob J. Rigdon (1846-1889) on 25 Jan 1866 at Shreveport, Caddo Parish, Louisiana.

Children of Susanna and Jacob:
1) Minnie Rigdon (Chadwick) (1867-1978)
2) Robert Rigdon (1868- )
3) Nancy "Nannie" B. Rigdon (Terry, Plowman) (1868-1962)
4) Amelia Rigdon (George) (1879-1918)
5) Warren Rigdon (1884-1966)
6) Frank Wesley Rigdon (1887-1966)

The descendants of William & Ann are researching to try and determine what happened to William, Ann, and their children. If you have any information on the family, I would appreciate it if you would contact me.
